The ARRIS C4c™ CMTS Release 7.1 is a compact DOCSIS® 3.0 CMTS based on the proven hardware and software of the larger C4® CMTS solution. The C4c CMTS allows an operator to cost effectively deploy DOCSIS, PacketCable™, DSG/ADSG, and PCMM services in smallto- medium size headends where space and power are often limited. The ARRIS C4c CMTS supports DOCSIS 1.1/2.0/3.0 and PacketCable features, providing operators with a large array of Quality of Service capabilities to deploy revenue-generating services. The C4c CMTS brings a host of value-added features including DOCSIS downstream channel bonding, independent scaling of upstream and downstream channels, and IPv6 management of cable modems. The ARRIS C4c CMTS is a 7 rack unit, 8-slot chassis with a mid-plane based architecture designed for continuous system operation. This unique architecture allows the ARRIS C4c CMTS to provide integrated Layer 3 edge routing and advanced CMTS functionality combined in a single chassis. Four types of modules are available:
- System Control Module (SCM)
- Router Control Module (RCM)
- 16D Cable Access Module (16D CAM)
- 12U Cable Access Module (12U CAM)
Superior Availability and Throughput
All modules in the ARRIS C4c CMTS are designed for “hot-swap” operation and can be inserted or removed while the system remains powered. The control complex modules and cable access modules are the same as used in the field-proven C4 CMTS. CAM sparingcapability is designed into the C4c chassis hardware that also supports redundant AC or DC dual power supply modules. The ARRIS C4c CMTS features a programmable switch fabricdesigned to provide unique queuing and congestion control capabilities for optimalswitching performance.
Compact High-Density Design
The C4c CMTS is perfect for smaller headends where rack space, powering, or the number of data/VoIP subscribers is limited.
Six CAM slots are provided in the chassis for a total capacity of 12 to 60 upstream channels and 16 to 80 downstream channels.
Enhanced Routing & Networking Technology
The C4c CMTS with the RCM provides enhanced routing and forwarding, including integrated one 10GE and ten 1GE network interfaces for direct connection to a cable operator’s IP network. Advanced DOCSIS 3.0 services including IPv6 and service flow classification are available in the C4c CMTS with Release 7.1.
DOCSIS 3.0 Downstream Channel Bonding
The C4c CMTS Rel. 7.1 supports DOCSIS 3.0 downstream channel bonding with variable size bonding groups. This allows for the aggregation of two or more DOCSIS channels to support ultra high bandwidths. For example, four bonded channels provide a 160 Mbps data stream to a subscriber’s DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem.
Independent Downstream and Upstream Channel Deployments
The C4c CMTS supports independent downstream and upstream modules allowing an operator to “tailor” available servicebandwidth in both the downstream and upstream directions within the same C4c CMTS chassis.
